The Sharks won the 2012 SARU Interprovincial Sevens held at Loftus over the weekend, beating the EP Kings in a tense final by 29 – 14.

The Sharks sent a strong team that were favourites from the outset, and still managed to hold their nerve during the two day tournament, beating the Lions in the quarter-finals before beating the Cheetahs in the semi-finals before taking the crown.

Rosco Speckman, who made his Sharks senior side debut this season, was named Player of the Tournament ahead of the performances from teammates Sbu Sithole and Tera Mthembu. The team was captained by Shannon Rick and the performing members would have caught the attention of National Sevens coach Paul Treu.

We would like to congratulate the team, who despite being overwhelming favourites to lift the Cup, still went out and did the job.

    Only for a Sharks team can being overwhelming favourites be a problem :roll:
